Elephant Seal Vista Point Trail Reviews

By far the best place to see the elephant seals. In the Spring, you’ll be able to see the pups along the beach too. The trail is easy and are filled with wildflowers along the path. To preserve the local vegetation, stay on the paths that are clearly marked. Dogs are sadly not allowed. So, Fido needs to stay home on this visit.
